The Art of
Artist reception Friday, August 10th
From 8pm – 10pm
Bagge is probably best known for the ’90s comic book series Hate, which followed the exploits of the slacker ne’er-do-well Buddy Bradley (and managed to show probably the truest representation of Seattle during the “grunge” boom and bust).
But the Buddy Bradley saga is only a small part of Bagge’s oeuvre, which saw its first glory days in R. Crumb’s Weirdo Magazine (which he edited for several issues) and continues to expand to this day as he appears in Reason magazine, MAD and the Weekly World News.
So – it goes without saying that we just pulled the above from the Fantagraphics web site. Might want to add that Bagge also did animated commercials for Round Table Pizza. And is currently finishing up Apocalypse Nerd for Dark Horse.
Join us as we discuss flannel shirts, coffee and catching fish with news paper.
